About this episode

Chlamydia pneumoniae (or Cp for short) is a respiratory bacterium that causes treatable lung infections in humans and has been linked to the development of asthma. In a recent study, Dr David L. Hahn at St Mary’s Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of the available published data on the frequency and impact of Cp infection in child and adult asthma patients, and considered the potential implications for treatment.
